A family carnival all the way

A group of girls was seen clicking selfies. Doting fathers took turns to take care of their children and mothers found the place quite warm as they could freak out for a while with their friends. Children were lost in their own sweet world of food, games, and loads of fun.

This sums up the scene at the Disney Family Carnival held at The Park Hotel on Sunday evening.

Hosted by the Creative Plus Entertainment Network, along with a group of likeminded people, the event whipped up a magic show, contests like kids fancy dress, family fashion parade, and Disney parade clubbed with heart-pounding music.

The carnival provided an avenue for all age groups to meet and make merry.

“It is a nice way to relax and unwind before we start our week ahead. Being part of the carnival helps us de-stress to a great extent,” says Pratyusha, a final year BBM student.

Children queued up at the makeshift stalls to pick up their favourite flavour of ice golas . Some of the counters were dishing out pastas topped with broccoli and cheese to suit the taste of the younger crowd.

Mothers who turned up in large numbers felt that the platform helped them meet their friends.

“It is a rare opportunity for us to meet at a common place as we are tangled in our world of responsibilities. With a bunch of games to keep the kids occupied and food counters to fill our appetite, the venue has turned out to be quite refreshing for all of us,” says Abha Goel, who came along with her group of friends.

The carnival roped in families from across communities.

“The idea is to bring in innovative elements to engage people of all age groups and involve them in a row of fun-filled activities,” says Naresh Agarwal, one of the organisers.
